HOSTS The Nomaddz
The NoMaddz host the Mainstage on both days. And they’re not just anyone! Sheldon “Sheppie” Shepherd and Everaldo “Evie” Creary both received the prestigious Jamaican Prime Minister Youth Award for Excellence in the field of Arts and Culture. These unique roots dub poets recorded their first album with producers Sly & Robbie. They both featured in two films (including Idris Elba’s Yardie just this year) and have a sponsorship deal with Puma. Their second album Heaven on Earth will be released this year. In it they condemn social issues and police violence. Sheppie and Evie are infinitely likable and possess a great deal of swag. Plenty of reasons for Chris Blackwell to call them “really good, really talented and really smart”.
